Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

Safari orientation change hides top of panel

  • Safari orientation change hides top of panel

    I am using the most recent official version of Alpha and have a very simple UX (no responsive rules).

    On my iPhone 6 using Safari, rotating from portrait to landscape causes the panel header to be hidden by the URL textbox area. This behavior does not happen on my iPad (using Safari) or when using Chrome on my iPhone 6.

    It works correctly using the working preview, live preview options in the developer environment....but an actual deployed copy hides the panel header every time when using Safari and

    I have attached a copy of the UX.....doesn't get more simple than this.

    Has anyone else experienced this and if so....is there a work around?

    Thanks
    Greg

    Re: Safari orientation change hides top of panel

    Does the same on the iPhone 5. I believe the Safari is shoving in it's header and footer slightly after the orientation... and after Alpha's PanelCard has been set... so it's overlaying the PanelCard header.

    This kind of gets you there... but it's really a mess. You don't run into these issues, generally, with PhoneGap Build.

    In the Client-side onOrientationChange event...

    setTimeout(function(){
    window.scrollTo(0, 1);
    setTimeout(function(){
    var obj = {dialog.object}.getPanelObject();
    obj.resize();
    },100);
    },100);

    This attempts to hide the URL bar... but it doesn't really... and then we resize the PanelCard Object. It almost works.

      Thanks Dave!

      This does make things work much better and I appreciate the code. Not sure if Alpha can tweak things a bit on their code to prevent this from being needed but at least it gives me a work around

      Much appreciated!

        I thought it was an interesting process... but I wouldn't run an Alpha component like this. Maybe for something simple and quick, but there's too much you're cut off from, and your at the mercy of an external browser. Plus you're losing a ton of screen real estate.
